(Interview) Aaron Armstrong

In his new book, I’m A Christian…Now What?, Aaron Armstrong delivered a blend of the usual and unique guide for the new believers. Having finished it, I can say I haven’t read something like this.

I reached out to him to talk about his family, John Piper, creativity and of course his book.

To add a twist, I dug some interesting IG photos from Aaron’s account and asked him to try and fill some stories into those photos.

Have your kids read one of your books?

My kids have read at least parts of one of my books, “Epic: the Story that Changed the World“. They acted as my test readers on that one, which was really kind.

(Interview) Sharmaine Saraspi of Guilt, Grace, Gratitude

You know the T-shirts, hoodies and the mugs. Now let’s get to know the person behind these merchs. Sharmaine Saraspi of Guilt, Grace, Gratitude talks about her recent merch booth over Pilgrim Theological Conference, how she started GGG, and being creative for God’s glory.

Hi Sharmaine. Saw some photos of you and your booth at the Pilgrim Theological Conference. So how was the experience being there with your merchs?

It is actually refreshing and I am truly grateful to finally set up a merch booth again after 3 years of the pandemic.

There are lots of Reformed brethren there and I think they like what you put out through Guilt, Grace, Gratitude. What’s the feeling of being recognized and being able to see folks wearing your t-shirts?

I’m actually shy because I’ve been trying to sell the merch while keeping a low profile since I started back in 2018, but I eventually made friends on social media (got exposed hahaha)  and was referred to by them, so eventually I got used to it.

8 Favorite Quotes From The Book “Raising Kids in a Screen-Saturated World” (Eliza Huie)

Have a blessed day to all!

Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, Raising Kids in a Screen-Saturated World by Eliza Huie published by 10 Publishing. You can get your copy, both physical and digital by following this link.

The biggest enemy parents have in raising kids in a screen-saturated world is the same enemy who continues to seek to destroy the work of God in your and your children’s lives. Don’t focus so much on fighting technology. Rather, fight against the ways Satan sneaks in to deceive and destroy.

I was saved in High School when some school friends invited me to a youth group. After hearing the teaching, I started to read the Bible on my own and the Spirit really just opened my eyes that Jesus was real and his Gospel was for me too. I still remember the conviction in my heart reading through the book of Matthew for the fist time.

(Satire) The Rebel’s Dictionary: Baptist Extinctives

(The Rebel’s Dictionary injects humor and satire to made up words.   By using funny words as jump off point, TRD aims to point out issues concerning Christians, the church and Christianity at large.)

Baptist Extinctives – A set of doctrines a group of Baptist (specifically the IFB or Bible Baptist here in the Philippines) upholds that set them apart from others denominations but now abandoned, modified or extinct from the original Baptist Distinctives. Usually the Baptist Distinctives can be summed up with this acrostic B. A. P. T. I. S. T. S. which means:

(Interview) Norton Hall Band on Hymns

Photo from Youtube

What did your church sang this Lord’s Day? Did it lift both your soul to worship and your voice to praise the goodness of Christ? Does it prepare your spirit for the weekly servings of God’s Word through the sermon? Does it convey words that you can’t express on how to be thankful for God’s providence? Does it bring you to tears knowing the truth of God through the lyrics of the song? I hope and pray that it’s a blessing to you as you sang either a contemporary worship song or hymns.

The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) has this group called Norton Hall Band that plays a fresh take on hymns. They have a new album, Still Our Refuge which is the third album they released this year. I reach out with Evan Sams, guitarist of Norton Halls Band to talk about hymns, their band and their new album.

For those who are not familiar with hymns, can you define what a hymn is?
